To start, the Atlanta Business Chronicle named WicksteadWorks as one of the top 20 remodelers in Atlanta. Atlanta has many qualified remodeling companies, but WicksteadWorks’ emphasis on customer satisfaction, impeccable quality of work and devotion to green building practices has given them an edge over their competition, and solidified themselves as a top remodeler in Atlanta.
“This is a tremendous recognition and we are honored to have been named one of Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Top 20 Remodeling Companies,” said Frank Wickstead, President of WicksteadWorks. “It is a privilege to be ranked among the best in Atlanta and this designation is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff at WicksteadWorks,”
Wickstead’s expertise in green building practices is evident by the fact that he is a LEED Accredited Professional. This year he added to his green credentials by becoming a verifier for the National Green Building Program, which is part of the National Home Builders Association. As a verifier, Wickstead will thoroughly analyze different homes, ensuring that they meet the criteria of the national green building certification. In addition, Wickstead also became a Certified Green Building Professional. Wickstead firmly believes in building green, which is why the minimum standard for all WicksteadWorks projects is EarthCraft certification.
While the company has furthered their involvement with the green building industry and been labeled as a top remodeler in Atlanta, they have also launched a new blog specifically for homeowners undertaking a do-it-yourself remodeling project. “Ask WicksteadWorks” is a forum in which homeowners will be able to get advice from an industry expert completely free of charge. The blog was created to be highly interactive, so visitors to the site are encouraged to leave comments and ask any remodeling questions they may have.
As an experienced remodeling company, WicksteadWorks is able to provide solutions for all types of problems. For example, one renovation project of WicksteadWorks was for a family with two asthmatic children. After the project was completed, the children’s asthma symptoms were completely gone due to WicksteadWorks’ renovations of the crawl space and HVAC system. Once the renovations were complete, the house became EarthCraft certified.
WicksteadWorks (wicksteadworks.com) has completed a wide variety of projects. In 2007, WicksteadWorks received an OBIE Award for “best renovation” for their work on the Bauer Project. WicksteadWorks completed a whole house renovation transforming a 1930’s bungalow into a modern energy-efficient home, while maintaining the original architectural integrity. More recently, WicksteadWorks was featured on Renovation Nation, a regular program on the Planet Green channel, for the innovative water conservation and rainwater reuse techniques they incorporated into a Myrtle Street project.
